The photographs in this coffee table e-book colourfully reveal the glamorous world of Thai transvestite cabaret. 4,000 words, 86 full colour images

In Thailand practically every town or village has several openly transsexual boys or men who dress as women and are born with feminine characteristics. They are known by a Thai term which translates 'Women of the Second Kind', and are also often known by the English loan word 'Ladyboy'.

Perhaps no other country in the world has such a large percentage of transsexuals, nor arguably does there exist any other culture where persons of the ‘third gender' can live and interact with society so freely and comfortably.

The photographs in this 'coffee table e-book' portray the glamorous world of Thai erotic and exotic transvestite cabaret and represent, faithfully, Thailand's extraordinary 'Theater of Illusion'.
